Brad Paisley is one of country music's greatest living guitar players. On his latest album, 5th Gear, the reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year blends his masterful chicken pickin' with just the right amount of the clever humor that has helped establish him as one of the most entertaining songwriters in the genre; his most recent hit single, "Online," is nothing short of LOL-inspiring. Paisley, however, is at his best when he lets his soft side shine through on charming ballads like "She's Everything" and "We Danced," which showcase a unique lyrical sincerity, and his current single, "Letter to Me," which brilliantly captures all of the goofiness, ruggedness and sensitivity of being a modern male. Expect a night of country music in overdrive when Paisley's high-powered Bonfires & Amplifiers tour pulls up to the Pepsi Center this Wednesday with newcomers Rodney Atkins ("Watching You") and Chuck Wicks ("Stealing Cinderella").
